Factory Wide Thin McCarty or Altered?

Hello All,

I just measured my 1999 IRW McCarty as having a thickness of .815 in at the first fret. Nut width is right around 1.677 in. I have a .89in wide fat brw cu22. Nut width on that is at1.69 in.

Is it possible my neck was a wide thin from the factory? Maybe a happy accident? It feels excellent to play and is a very light weight guitar. I thought maybe a thinner pattern regular but the nut width feels similar to my wide fat cu22
Yeah it seems odd as I have never seen one with a wide thin. The measurements really line up to being a wide thin profile. If work was done on it, it was done right.
